If its the first run just do a TPW wash. It cant be hosed up (youll gently caress up heaps). Then you can make serious booze when you got a handle on things.

TPW will ferment in a week and cost $10

ive never tried with tomato paste but im gonna try and give it a shot just because its so cheap. i have a feeling hes gonna wanna do it his way tho. ;/ the other person that lives w/ us has been having us do weird poo poo like cream soda which i guess she found online in some flavored moonshine recipe. its just a waste of money because none of the flavor comes through with the still we use.

ok im back isaac. im remodeling part of my house and also playing a lot of this war of mine so im sorry for the delay 'mate'. i took a picture of the still while i was in the shed getting some screws. the still and the shed really need to be cleaned.



after talking it out with my friends we're either gonna use just sugar like i want or soda and sugar. i couldnt talk them into the tomato paste so if were gonna use soda im gonna make sure its mountain dew and goon it up. we need 9000g of sugar with the yeast we use so i'm gonna make a trip to bjs sometime soon. after it ferments for 10 days well check the alc% and see what we have.

haha i just noticed we have the exact same still. he got it from new zealand so i guess it makes sense. he put some valves and poo poo in ours to let you adjust the water/temperature to the condenser and reflux condenser independently.

9kg of sugar ita gonna be a strong brew.

Jul 23, 2003



yeah we try to get that poo poo as close to 180 proof as possible without spending too much. usually get about a gallon and we might take a couple pints of it and mix it with appples or peaches or whatever and a cinnamon stick and just drink the rest straight. we had his dude we were letting sleep on the couch and he would loving drink our shine in the middle of the night. NEVER AGAIN.

Isaac

Youre gonna be using turboyeast or champagne yeast which will get 9kg of sugar up to about 14%. If you run it all through the still you should end up with 6 or 7 litres @ 40% once (if) you water it down. I dont know why youd put soda in it but ots your shine.

Edit itll actually yield around 10L of 40%

First cut on a pot still you can get up round 92%. Throughout the distilliation the abv drops down to 10% eventually.

Over the whole process using turboyeast wash you can get round 9 litres of 40% using a 25L still

Isaac

Say beer yeast will die once ita got up round 8% i think turboyeast and champagne yeast maybe can get to 20%. There are other yeasts around that can go higher but ive never used them

Ill add a disclaimer that ive never researched any of this these are just rough numbers from my own trial and error

The first 50ml you supposed to throw out or use for fuel. I might cut 100ml to be extra safe. That first bit has all the chemicals that make you go blind and they come off firt because they are more volatile than ethanol.

The nettle one would suit a bloody mary very well. The tomato one maybe but its not a great flavour.

Im not a bloody mary drinker though.

Once i ordered one and the girl at the bar had to get out the cocktail book. Took her like 15mins to make and she said "you better bloody drink this" i had one sip and was disgusted. Luckily a friend of mine happened to be walking past the bar and i gave it to him and he drank it and then continued on his day.

Bloody Mary's are for when you get post coital brunch at 11 am on a Sunday with the girl you've been dating for 3 weeks and you're both still hung over and bloody marys are the only thing they serve until 3 and you know you're just going to go home together giggling full of eggs and bread

This reminds me of being back in the city so much.


I got that problem where if alcohol touches my lips i start drinking it in large quantities and i cant stop so if i do drink during brunch things kinda go downhill from there.

Whenever I visit my inlaws in Vietnam, I always drink a ton of their homebrew'd Vietnamese moonshine. No idea how it's made or what it's made of, but it is some good stuff that will mess you up. When I ask for details, they just tell me that some dude in the village makes it and everyone just buys it off him for very cheap. No one's gone blind off of it, so I was never too worried. Sometimes it has bees or snakes or random herbs and roots which vary the flavor and 'health benefits'. It's not exactly something I can take back with me though.

All the details and such of making it that you're sharing are really interesting. Thanks for the updates!

we have these craft beer bars in a brunch arm's race for the best and edgiest bloody mary. "we put pickled pigs feet in ours." "homeless urine gives it that added oomph."
